Oakland Unified Expected to Make $15 Mil in Budget Cuts

Oakland Unified is currently facing a $15 million deficit unless it can find a way to cut from the mid-year budget.

According to the East Bay Times:

“To achieve sustainability for the current 2017-18 school year, the district also must allocate $1.2 million just to restore its reserve account to the minimum required to avoid state receivership and bolster it with an additional $7.2 million, increase funding for specific programs by $4.7 million and rebuild its self-insurance fund by $2 million.

The board is expected to decide next month where to make the $15.1 million in cuts.”

The district is focused on maintaining transparency for the community and is holding a public budget meeting November 20.
